Have any of you lot got a raised pond? They seem to be fairly common with Koi keepers. With a glass front to observe the fish from. I was initially going to build one this summer but due to the weather it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

Never seen one but it seems  like a great concept. A bit like raised beds for alpine plants brining the tiny jewels up to easy viewing level. It will be interesting to see how your project goes.  :)

I had one, no glass wall in it though, it makes moving water in a filter easier as you don't have to lift the water, so bigger through put of gallons through the filter bed without huge electrickery bills for a large pump.

I wouldn't use glass, too fragile, Acrylic would be better but scratching would then be a problem :) My pal George had a pond in his old house. Technically it was raised as the garden had been dug back to allow the path around the house. No viewing pane but you could sit on the retaining wall and watch the fish. He had Goldfish, a couple of Koi and Shubunkins which were a fair size when he moved and gave them away.
Don't worry, be happy.

Carried it in full, then carry it out empty.

One of my neighbours up at Tough built a nice Koi pond. One by one the very expensive fish vanished. A heron got used to visiting at first light.  :D

I have a wildlife pond now, not raised with no fish, far too many cats never mind herons as well.

Something like this. It's reinforced tempered glass that is used. I think it will work out the most expensive part.IMG_7509.jpg
